Visitors to New York City looking for an escape from the buzzing city can slip off to the Upper East Side for a stay at Hotel Wales, located on a tree-lined street one block from Central Park. Built in 1902, the historic property is one of New York’s oldest hotels and is a half mile from Mount Sinai Hospital, the New York Academy of Medicine and the Guggenheim Museum. Visiting parents and alumni are a 10-minute taxi ride from Hunter College and four train lines stop within four blocks of the hotel, connecting guests to the rest of Manhattan.

All accommodations feature high ceilings, restored woodwork and marble, brass light fixtures, crisp white bedding and dark wood furnishings. Guest rooms include the choice of two twin beds or one queen and all have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, iHome radios, Gilchrist and Soames toiletries and terrycloth robes.

Despite being surrounded by top-notch fare from every corner of the world when staying at this hotel, guests only have to head to the ground floor for weekend brunch or comfort food any time at Sarabeth’s East or classic Italian cuisine from Paola’s. In spring and summer, guests can relax and drink in the views of Central Park on the seasonal rooftop terrace that includes a garden and tables with umbrellas. The property has a fitness center on-site and guests can purchase $10 daily passes to a nearby gym with 100 weekly classes, a 25-foot lap pool and personal training (reg. $35).
